  • @jlemley Well, ours are done through parent coffee mornings, so we probably have one a month, but they're usually not technology oriented. I did one earlier this year on the role of technology in teaching and learning at LIS, and in April I'll do one on social networking. Of course, we also have mornings about our MiddleCAS program, Transition to the MYP, New Parents etcetera. I noticed YIS does maybe one a month (?) but I think theirs are done by Kim Cofino, their dedicated Tech person, not by a full time teacher.

  • Thanks, Katy. It was really interesting, I did the same presentation three times last week to different groups of parents (small groups) and it went differently each time based on the needs of their tech concerns and children. It was also really powerful with the few parents who actually brought their own child's laptop. How often do you do parent workshops? I'm trying to find the balance with all the other events offered to them throughout the year.

No notes for slide
  • Go to second slide to start.
  • Awareness. Know what your kids are doing. Don’t be nervous because you know less than your child.You wouldn’t let your kid go into downtown Bangkok or out late in Tokyo all by themselves without guidance, why do we just give them their laptops without guidance.
  • Up until mid way through last year, I did not teach students about social media. Realistically they weren’t supposed to be using it. I didn’t use it much in my teaching. Then problems starting happening… sometimes very innocently. They didn’t know… And I thought, if I don’t teach them, who will?
